Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?

  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There's no change to the appearance of the up/down voting arrows on answers with the Android app at the moment. This means that whe you return to a question there's no way of seeing which answers you've already upvoted (or not)

Question updated I can see this on both SE 2.0 sites and the original trilogy, but it does only seem to be happening on Answer votes, Question votes change colour as expected. – GAThrawn Aug 9 '13 at 7:39

Just to support GAThrawn's question and the comments raised, the behavior seems the same on:

  • Android.SE
  • StackOverflow
  • StackOverflow Meta
  • Cooking.SE

The screenshots are all questions / answers I have upvoted. This is on a Samsung Galaxy S4, using deodexed stock ROM (Android 4.2.2).
